Ipswich Town shock WBA - and are 12/1 to win the Carling Cup

Ipswich Town are as short as 12/1 to win the Carling Cup after pulling off a quarter-final shock.

The under-fire Ipswich manager Roy Keane guided his side, from the npower Championship, into the last four with a 1-0 win over top-flight West Brom, Grant Leadbitter scoring the only goal.

If the Tractor Boys are to go on and win the competition they will have to do it the hard way, though, after being paired with Arsenal in the semi-finals.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side are the odds-on favourites with all the bookmakers, priced at 4/7 generally.

While Ipswich were beating West Brom, Nikola Zigic put Birmingham through to their first Carling Cup semi-final for nine years as they beat fierce rivals Aston Villa 2-1.

Birmingham City are rated 4/1 shots ahead of their semi-final encounter with fellow Premier League side West Ham, who are available at 5/1 to go on and win the competition
